Fluorescence microscopy is an imaging technique that uses fluorescence, either by intrinsic emission or artificially added fluorophores, to provide contrast to microscope images. This technical note shows how a fluorescence images along with emission spectra and lifetime decays, can be acquired using an Edinburgh Instruments FS5 Spectrofluorometer with the microscope add-on.

As photoluminescence (PL) research evolves, so does the demand for sensitive instrumentation to measure increasingly weak PL signals. Besides photon-counting detectors and monochromators with good stray light rejection, the source used to excite the sample is a key component to consider when designing an experiment.
